'He’s got a really good left foot and he wanted to be here and that’s vital for me' says Paul
Callum Elder has joined Town on loan from Leicester for the rest of the season.
The 23-year-old Australian defender signed for the Foxes in 2013 but has not featured for them so far.
He spent time out on loan at Mansfield and Peterborough before tasting Championship football with Brentford and Barnsley during the 2016/17 campaign.
Capped by Australia at U20 level, he was on loan at Wigan last season, helping the Latics to the League One title.
“I’m delighted we have been able to get Callum in early. He gives us more competition on the left side,” Town boss Paul Lambert told the Club website.
“He is a very good player. He’s been training with top players at Leicester and he has handled that well. He’s got a really good left foot and he wanted to be here and that’s vital for me. I need players who want to come here and play for this Club.”
Callum is available for Saturday's FA Cup trip to Accrington Stanley.
